In “things/unthings,” artist Noël Hennelly created three body-sized, shelf-like sculptural objects, full of strips of wood, knickknacks, tools, and toys. The program was cleverly, and very elegantly, allusive. Choreographer Margaret Wiss used the dancers’ bodies and simple brown costumes to echo the structure and form of the objects, then brought them to life in a way that suggested a Minimalist version of the Nutcracker.
